Lea Michele and Darren Criss reunited this week, causing Gleeks everywhere to rejoice. A photo op would’ve been enough to elicit major nostalgia, but the two decided to give their fans even more. They performed not one, but three numbers.
The first duet was a major throwback to their Glee days. During the Season 2 episode, “Blame It on the Alcohol,” Lea and Darren performed “Don’t You Want Me.” They revisited the Human League cut, fittingly armed with a glass of red wine each.
The following two numbers promoted each other’s post-Glee enterprises. Criss first assisted Michele on “Getaway Car” from her upcoming second album, Places. The 30-year-old actress previously revealed the song was a tribute to her late boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith.
Lea then returned the favor by singing with Darren on “Lost Boys Life.” The song is the title track off an EP, released by his new band, Computer Games which includes his brother Chuck.
Check out all the performances below. I also included a Facebook Live chat where the two talked about their respective careers, Glee days and which cast members they still keep in touch with.
